Oh Dear! A Deer with no Name…….

Baby reindeerI mentioned recently that we were getting a new arrival at Billingley Christmas Tree Farm in the shape of a new Reindeer.  Only this reindeer is a bit special as he is almost pure white and he was only born this Spring.  He currently has no name and after much discussion in our household and many suggestions from our children – most of which seem to revolve around characters from Frozen! – we have decided to ask for you help in finding the perfect name for this handsome little guy.

Please post your suggestions and like and share our Facebook page, or follow us on Twitter.  The winning entry will not only have the privilege of naming the Reindeer, but will also win a free tree (up to 6ft) for this coming season.

So remember, feel free to send us your name suggestions any way you like, but if you want the chance to win a tree, you must ‘like’ and ‘share’ our Facebook post (www.facebook.com/TheChristmasTreeFarm) and or follow us on Twitter @TCTF

Cones or no cones? That is the question.

During our recent visit to check on the Korean Firs, it was noticeable that some of the tree had a number of cones on them.  The cones are, in my opinion, a lovely surprise and a beautiful blue colour.  However, the normal process for Christmas Trees when they develop cones, is to ‘rub’ them off.  It is deemed that cones are not a welcome addition to Christmas Trees, and in fairness, I’m not sure how well they would cope with the tree being netted, but here at Billingley Christmas Trees, we are curious to know what you, the customers, think.

Take a look at the photos and let us now whether its a thumbs up or a thumbs down for cones on trees.  Ask all your friends to take a look and give us their opinion, we’d love to know what you think.  We may even try keeping a few this year……!
